The authentic text-critical new edition - complete as sales material. The unique stature of Breitkopf's new edition of Dvorák's Stabat mater can easily be nailed down by three superlatives: It is the only edition with a historically legitimated piano-vocal score. Josef Zubat²'s arrangement is the only authentic reduction, and was commissioned by Dvorák himself for the world premiere. (The composer never made a reduction of this work himself.) It is the only edition with a choral score. It is thus the first text-critical edition that goes beyond the source findings presented in the Dvorák Complete Edition and which can be used for performances with a material that can be purchased in its entirety.
